ERT 200 courses are a great way to gain more skills in disaster response efforts. In addition, ERT 200 courses qualify for ERT re-certification. In order to qualify for re-certification, the 200 level course must be completed within 4 years of original ERT badging. Though an ERT badge is good for 3 years, a 200 level course can be completed in the 4th year to qualify for a re-certification. 200 level course can be taken at any time; you do not have to only use it as a re-certification course.
